TRANSLOCATION POSITIONING EXPERIMENTS USING THE NAVY NAVIGATION SATELLITE SYSTEM

With the increasing application of the Navy Navigation Satellite System (NNSS) to both land surveying and offshore drill rig and platform positioning, a need has arisen for a comparison of the performance and cost of standard satellite positioning techniques versus translocation positioning techniques using satellites. Translocation positioning is a technique by which two satellite receivers are used at separate sites to quickly establish one of the site's position when the other site's position is well known. This paper provides data to help the NNS user decide which technique is best suited for his application.
